As a Marketer and someone who understands the social media space I continue to ensure that my clients truly understand what's acceptable behaviour in this space.

I agree that there are bloggers out there who use their expansive network to take advantage of advertisers who want the reach. The content posts they initiate will not necessarily be authentic or even perceived as such and so their credibility will be taken into question the more they enter into these types of relationships. I truly believe that relationships with bloggers and advertisers can be just as strong as a friendship.
